My research sits at the intersection of medical humanities, animal studies, and science and technology studies (STS). I study how knowledge is produced in farm veterinary science and medicine and respond to particular social, institutional and organisational circumstances. Along with contemporary debates in public health ethics, I am interested in the interconnectedness of human and nonhuman animals in the (un)making of health and wellbeing. I am currently developing research in the areas of animal health care and digital sensing in farming, looking at how different digital sensor technologies emerge, are shaped, and impact on the way we understand and care for farmed animal health and wellbeing, the ethics of farmed animal health care, and people and farmed animals' relations.
I originally trained as a veterinary practitioner in France. I specialised in public health and animal farming, and I worked for three years at the French Food Safety Agency and at the French Ministry of Agriculture where I contributed to the development of new frameworks for animal health and welfare assessment and management in farming. In 2013, I was awarded a grant by the EU Vice-Chancellor Scholarship for Research Excellence to undertake my doctoral studies in veterinary epidemiology at the University of Nottingham in the UK. I completed my PhD three years later and moved to the University of Liverpool where I held a postdoctoral position. I joined the Centre for the History of Science, Technology, and Medicine (CHSTM), University of Manchester as a Wellcome Trust Research Fellow in Humanities and Social Science in 2020.
